    You might have the right cable but are you using the right software? Without more specifics it is difficult to help.

What kind of cord do I need to connect my laptop so Netflix Movies can play on our T.V.?


Hi Candice,

First, without the model of your TV *and* laptop, no one will be able to give more than general information. It is much better to provide too much info than not enough - to get questions answered quickly here. With that said..

The short answer is that you need a cable that will connect to your note book (most likely either Video [yellow], S-Video, VGA, DVI, Display Port or HDMI) and the TV (most likely RF, Video, S-Video, PC / VGA, HDMI or RGB) Only the HDMI cable will provide sound with video. The others will require either an audio connection from the laptop (probably via a 3.5mm stereo headphone output jack) to the TV (most likely standard "RCA" jacks [red & white] - or settling for the laptop speakers or external amplified speakers plugged into the headphone jack.

If you are unable to locate a cable that has the connector supported by the laptop with a connector offered on the TV, it is likely because it is not possible to connect the two (HDMI to video, etc.) with only a cable. Additional hardware (probably expensive if available) will be needed to up or down convert & split audio to make it compatible.

Take a photo of the jacks offered by your laptop and those on your TV to a respected TV / Audio store / department for additional assistance. Some Radio Shack store employees are very good - and some are just plain horrible. Save your receipts in case it doesn't work to your liking.

Keep in mind that a $50 Roku box will stream Netflix (and a whole lot more) to most TV's "right out of the box" - or by buying $10 HDMI cable online to connect an HDTV. Don't spend 20, 30 or more dollars on an HDMI cable unless you want to pay too much!

I hope this helps and good luck!

Good luck!

I have a toshiba satellite p755, it use to be able to hook up to my HD TV with the HDMI chord but now its not connecting..whats the problem?


Make sure all connections Power ,HDMI and any other connecting leads have secure dust free connections also check each lead for any kinks / bends .
Connecting a Toshiba Satellite Laptop to a TV is an ideal way to enjoy videos, photos and other media on the laptop on a much larger screen.
Satellite Laptops can be connected to TVs using VGA, S-Video and even HDMI, though the TV has to have compatible inputs as well.

Connect the RGB cable or S-video cable to an open input on the TV.
Depending on the type of TV, it may or may not have a RGB input.
S-video may have to be used instead.
Connect the 1/4 inch to RCA Y-cable into the TV using the same input as the VGA or S-video cable.
Connect the other end of the VGA or S-video cable and the audio cable into the laptop.
The video ports are on the sides of the laptop.
The audio cable should go into the headphone jack of the laptop.

I am trying to connect my acer 1640z with my tv (lcd) with a vga cable but there is no connection even when i press Fn + F6 buttons. What can i do?


make sure your TV is on the right channel. it will not connect automatically.
connecting a vga cable will only provide picture but no audio. you may need a male to male stereo cable and connect it to the laptop and the tv's stereo jack.

Trying to connect my toshiba satellite a205-s5804 laptop to my sony bravia lcd 1080 t.v. I have connected VGA from laptop to t.v.VGA pc in on t.v..Also headphone out to sound in on t.v.. T.V. not excepting...


Please double check that your VGA cable is working properly and you have installed the most updated version of video drivers.
Is the TV not even playing the sound? Are you on the right channel? Only try checking the sound on a AV channel by using a headphone jack to AV jack cable.
If you have a S-Video port try connecting with it you can get that cable for a buck in a dollar store.
Hope this helps.

Connect Laptop to TV


It depends on what kind of TV you have. If you have a flat-panel LCD or plasma TV, it may have a VGA connection already installed. If that is the case, all you need is a standard VGA cable to connect from your notebook to your TV.

If you have a TV without a VGA connection you will need a scan converter to convert your signal from VGA to RCA or composite video signal. These can be purchased online or from electronics stores like Radio Shack. You plug your VGA connection from the computer to the scan converter, then RCA or composite video cables from the converter to the TV.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

I wanna hook my laptop to my tv. used a vga cable and get picture but no sound


You also need an audio cable to go along with the VGA cable. You will need a 3.5mm audio jack cable. Plug one side into the headphone jack of your laptop, the other side into the 3.5mm audio jack that is right beside the VGA connector.
